The Event 6

The Event 6, volume 4 (1991)

I recently purchased a lot of comic related promo newspapers; a few Comic Shop News and a couple Event papers. Unfortunately Swamp Thing doesn’t appear in any of the other papers except for this, Event 6.

The cover of this entertainment newspaper features a collage of notable comic book charters much like a Comics Buyers Guide. It’s pretty easy to spot the various, notable artist’s work throughout. I was excited to add this paper to my collection because of Bissette’s Swamp Thing in the corner. The artwork -originally appearing in ST series 2- has been used for various DC house ads in the past.

The Event was a free entertainment newspaper focused on all the action going on in Wasatch county, Utah.

Typically the paper doesn’t feature a bunch of funny book characters running wild on the cover. The cover story, “A Brief History of Comic Books” provides an overview of comic book history and delves into the comic craze of the early 90s. Sadly no mention of Swamp Thing but having him on the cover is good enough for me.

I was pleasantly surprised to find this Big Baby strip in the back of the paper. For those unfamiliar with artist and storyteller, Charles Burns, he’s worth checking out and one of my favorites.
